With most people taking extra measures and self-isolating due to the global outbreak of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), online games and applications are gaining more popularity among people with extra free time.
A Japanese developer named Sato, also known as AI Gahuku, created an AI app that turns users’ selfies or pictures into a Renaissance painting.
The AI generator features several filters, giving users different options on what they would like their piece of art to look like.
The app has caused a new social media trend, with people turning celebrity photos into artworks, as well as their own pictures and even their pets’.
Most people are taking to Twitter to share their entertaining portraits along with fitting captions.
The trend spiked at the end of March, according to Google’s search results over the last 30 days worldwide.
By simply uploading your picture of choice on the generator (ai-art.tokyo), it will automatically be transformed into a Renaissance painting.
